Tonight marks the end of the second season of The Mysteries of Laura and it may end up being the end of the series as well. How’s the NBC TV show been doing in the ratings? Should it be cancelled or renewed for a third season?
The Mysteries of Laura revolves around a brilliant-but-harried NYPD homicide detective (Debra Messing) who must also juggle raising her young twin boys as a single mom. The rest of the cast includes Josh Lucas, Laz Alonso, Janina Gavankar, Max Jenkins, Callie Thorne, and Med Steedle.
The series began airing in Fall 2014 and the network no doubt had high expectations for the show. The first season ended up averaging a 1.22 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 7.45 million viewers. It was hardly an impressive showing but NBC renewed it for a second season anyway, likely hoping that the audience would grow in time.
Season two of Mysteries of Laura doesn’t seem to have attracted any new viewers but the cop family drama hasn’t lost many either. Year-to-year, the ratings are down less than 10% which is pretty good considering how much other dramas have been losing. Still, the ratings are far from good.
Laura is one of NBC’s lowest-rated drama series right now and is one of the few that’s yet to be cancelled or renewed for next season. Looking at the numbers, they could certainly go either way with this one. Their decision will likely have a lot to do with how their new show pilots look. We’ll know what they decide in May at the latest.
But, what do you think? Should Mysteries of Laura be renewed for a third season or cancelled instead?
Yes renew it …. I love the show. It is very good and a delight to watch.
YES RENEW IT,,, GREAT SHOW
7 millions people watching this show, you should be lucky, here in NZ the whole population is 4 million people!! duhhh :@
One of the BEST SHOW EVER!!! NBC PLEASE Renew. Or will another Network PLEASE renew for season 2016-2017 and beyond.
I’m disappointed it’s cancelled
I saw on Debra Messing’s Twitter yesterday that the show has been canceled. No season 3. How thoroughly disappointing. I guess viewer’s opinions mean nothing!
I love, love this show! Please keep the show running. Just found out that they’re cancelling it and it’s a bad decision that NBC has made. No shows are like The Mysteries of Laura, family friendly, funny and relates to everyday problems. Amazing cast and story line. There’s so much chemistry between them. Continue it for another season, no on wants it to be left on a cliffhanger! Go team Laura! I honestly will cry if it doesn’t continue
Pease keep the show!! I love it!
Yes yes yes, please renew this one!
I LOVE this show! It is clever, funny and heartwarming all at the same time and all while solving crimes! Please don’t cancel this unique and thoroughly enjoyable program!
Please renew this show !!! I am from China , and I like it very much , I cried when saw Laura cried , and I think she is too tough to seek for love , but now I know she is going to take the chance to accpet Jake .
Keep show going I absolutely love it:)
I really really hope/pray that this amazing show is continued with many more seasons because this is one of the very few shows I even like on NBC.Also if its possible, of course,can you bring back Detective Francesca “Frankie” Pulaski(she added more life to the show).
Please. Keep show for third season with all of the cast
Mysteries of Laura is the only show on NBC that I really enjoyed. Would like to make sure this is renewed.
